"Fever Artiste - Miami Girls (EP)"

Local five piece Fever Artiste are set to explode with the release of their debut EP Miami Girls. The selection of tracks featured on the record display a sense of fun and adventure that have all been neatly packaged into three minute pop ditties that are sure to get you up and grooving on the dance floor.

“Miami Girls” is an incredibly catchy tune with its sharp riffs and energetic melodies that simultaneously recall the work of indie heroes The Strokes and The Killers in the same breath. Joshua De Laurentiis’ vocals are neither awe inspiring or coma inducing, with the front man displaying a detached bemusement in his delivery which is suited to the music.

The happy, laid back vibe of “Getting Out” provides a stark contrast to the brooding tones of “It’s A Living”, a song that was made to be played loud in a live with it’s spiralling guitars and gigantic drum line that seems intent on leaving the listener in a sweaty, shaking heap on the floor.

Fever Artiste’s musicianship is tight and their songs are well crafted, the only thing lacking in this EP is a sense of who the band are, as they borrow a lot from their predecessors and it would be nice to see more of their own personality injected into their sound.

While the band may wear their influences firmly on their sleeves, the music made by Fever Artiste is easy to enjoy as it encapsulates the spirit of youthful naivety and living life with a reckless abandon.

Review Score: 7/10

"Fever Artiste - Little Robot"

Among their interests, this Melbourne five-piece list "Donkey Kong, ice hockey and nipple singlets." They forgot to mention their keen affinity for off-beat, jangly rock numbers that sound like the offspring of The Strokes and Franz Ferdinand. They started as a high school punk band but tunes like 'Little Robot' prove they're exploring far more interesting turf these days. - Radar Radio


"Fever Artiste - Miami Girls"

Catchy as you like, is the new song. You can hear the bands that Fever Artiste have been influenced by very clearly through out this song and for me, they've choosen the best aspects from each of the various artists to create a great pop track. Well done lads, looking forward to more and the EP that may be looming in the not too distant future. - www.blacknightcrash.com

Bio

Melbourne may have been having one of its shittest Summers on record but, for local band Fever Artiste, the season brought a stroke of good fortune. Their accomplished set of tunes caught the attention of producer Scott Horscroft (Little Red, Silverchair) who invited the five-piece to record late last year in sunny Sydney. The result of those sessions is the Miami Girls EP: a positively catchy trio of songs, with exciting guitar melodies, relentlessly tight rhythms, and the distinctive vocals of frontman Joshua De Laurentiis.

A homecoming residency at Ding Dong Lounge, with fellow indie scenesters Loon Lake, ended prematurely when the band's drummer Joel was involved in a bizarre tiling accident. Lamenting over the handy work of that unusually sharp piece of ceramic (the dude had to get hand surgery!) the band spent the downtime busy at work behind closed doors. Of course, as to be expected, a decent chunk of this time was blown drinking beer and throwing darts. The remainder was spent finessing and perfecting their live sound, which was finally showcased when they returned to the scene for a sell-out performance in April.

With new found support from Larry Tyler Management, the Miami Girls EP heralds an exciting newcomer to the scene, and what is sure to be a massive year for Fever Artiste.
